OWNER, SPEECH-LANGUAGE PATHOLOGIST

As a mother of 3 and a speech-language pathologist with over 2 decades of experience, I know parenting is a joy, but also hard work. When your child is having difficulty communicating, it can be frustrating – for everyone – but especially your little one! I value parents and caregivers as their children's most important teachers. This is why I take a collaborative approach, partnering with parents, caregivers, and teachers throughout the therapy process, to help your child communicate more effectively in all environments.

Children often feel most comfortable learning in their natural environment. I offer in-home sessions with a focus on coaching parents to use helpful communication strategies in their daily routines.

Therapy sessions can be conveniently woven into a child’s daycare or school schedule. I am happy to include teachers and daycare providers in the therapy process for the best outcomes.

Online therapy sessions are offered using a HIPAA-compliant version of Zoom. I am dedicated to making speech-language therapy engaging and accessible for all children!
